Prime Minister Narendra Modi touched various subjects in the 23rd chapter of Mann Ki Baat radio programme. He also gave importance to the upcomimg Teacher’s Day on 5th September.
“Teachers are as important as mothers in our lives. They spend their lives caring for their students. For me, September 5 is not only Teachers Day but a day of learning as well,” said PM Modi.
In the context of Teacher’s Day, he showered praise on P Gopichand, a renowned badminton player and coach of P V Sindhu, saying he is a shining example of a good teacher who gets deeply involved in his pupil’s performance.
“Gopichand, who is Sindhu’s coach has proved that he is a great teacher. I salute to him for his dedication and submission to the game,” said PM Modi.
“Even as a President, Dr S Radhakrishnan looked upon himself as a teacher; always kept the student in him alive,” the PM added.
He said he would not be able to participate in Teacher’s Day events this year as he would be travelling for G-20 Summit in China. PTI
